This was one of the weirdest, wildest football seasons I’ve ever been a part of.
The Eagles looked terrible at times, but came together late and made us all believe. They got us to buy in and think another run just might be possible.
In the end, there were just too many injuries to overcome.
I feel terrible for Alshon Jeffery. He’s been nothing short of great for the Eagles since coming here, but had the ball go through his hands to seal tonight’s loss.
The 2018 Eagles were absolutely maddening at times. Blowing the late leads against CAR and TEN left me as frustrated and angry as I’ve been in a long time. Seeing this team beat the Rams, Texans and Bears made me love this bunch.
Give the coaching staff a ton of credit. They had to deal with injuries in a way that I’ve never seen. Players coming and going, sometimes within games. The scouting department deserves a ton of credit as well. Finding guys like Cre’Von LeBlanc made a real difference.
Somehow this team stuck together, showing incredible toughness from a physical, mental and emotional standpoint.
Losing to the Saints hurts because the game was there for the taking, but I leave the 2018 season proud of what I saw from the players and coaches. They dealt with tremendous adversity, but found a way to stay a family and win games.
It was fun to believe in FolesMagic right up until the end.
I expect big things next year. Let’s get these guys healthy and add some talent.
